The Dairy Farmers of Manitoba High School Athlete of the Week is Payton Leflar of the Morris Mavericks volleyball team.

Payton has had a tremendous volleyball season for the Mavericks. The 5'8 setter and co-captain led the team to victory at the AA Zone 4 Championship and Provincial Regional Round Qualifier, booking the Mavericks a spot at the Provincial Championships.  Coach Daniel Lehmann states, "Payton's intensity during practice and commitment to improving her game is contagious. She sets the tone during every practice and game, and the team matches her intensity. This makes her a great leader on and off the court. She is a threat to score in multiple ways, but also runs the team's dynamic offense with ease." Throughout the season, Payton has averaged 6 ace serves, 4 stuff blocks and 4 kills per match. 

This grade 12 student maintains a 92% academic average, while also participating in golf, baseball, curling and track & field at the school.
